He said: "There’s nothing remotely powerful or inspiring about a 5ft 3in person breaking the scales at 300lbs."

Writing on Instagram, he added: "As Britain battles an ever-worsening obesity crisis, this is the new cover of Cosmo.

"Apparently we’re supposed to view it as a ‘huge step forward for body positivity.'

"What a load of old baloney. This cover is just as dangerous & misguided as celebrating size zero models."

Tess later hit back at Piers' words, saying: "To everyone saying I’m a burden to the British health care system, I’m american so you don’t have to worry about my fat a**.

"Worry about what horrible people you are by whining about how me being on the cover of a glossy magazine impacts your small minded life."
